Aro Favourite I'm Not There


USA 2007, 135 minutes
Dir. Todd Haynes
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Music / Pop/Rock

Topics: Biopic.


Aroview: Arthouse maestro Todd Haynes directs this deliciously cinematic, kaleidoscopic musing on the life of Bob Dylan, with six different actors portraying different sides of the singer's haphazard personality and life, including Cate Blanchett, Heath Ledger and Christian Bale.

More of an experimental jigsaw that captures the spirit of Mr. Dylan than a straightforward biopic, this drama is worth a look purely for the acting calibre present with Cate Blanchett proving her extraordinary versatility once again. Those with a good knowledge of the man himself will perhaps most appreciate both the accuracy in the detail and the generous liberties taken, but the less initiated should still find this a stimulatingly complex exploration of a misunderstood artist.
